    Is This Illegal?

    Bought a pair of curtains for around £60 (Not me, but my mam)

    Picked it up and paid in cash and briefly looked over the curtains and left and went back home...

    Got home and realised that the curtains had strips and sploges of WHITE PAINT on them...

    Rang the woman who we bought them from and she said she 'couldn't hear us' and that it were breaking up and then disconnected the phone call. Rang back immediatly and couldn't get through..

    So we went back to the house and stood on the doorstep ringing the doorbell for about 10 minutes so the dog could bark. But to no avail. Went round the corner of the house and turned the car lights off and then saw her closing her bedroom curtains. So she was in the house. Left a mesage on her phone saying that we knew she was there and leaving negative feedback and that has been done...

    So is it illegal for her to keep our money, despite us having the curtains?

    If this is ebay, why don't you sort it out with them?

    quite hard when not answering phone or door.... :roll:

    if it said no returns on the advert then yes she can keep your money

    Did you 'inspect' before you handed over the cash?! (Guessing not...)

    This is what paypal is for

    you looked at them and handed over your cash - so it's tough.

    lesson to learn there

    Yes, only looked at the curtains and the tie backs, the paint is on the palmets...

    Yeah, but you don't have to negotiate with her in person, simply report … Yeah, but you don't have to negotiate with her in person, simply report via ebay?



    Will be reporting to Ebay, but that won't get our money back....

    Just fight fire with fire.

    Let tyres down on her car or dog poo through her letterbox.

    I know its childish but it gives you a temporary feeling of justice.

    :giggle: thanks but no thanks :thumbsup:

    don't ask people on a forum, ask someone who knows what they are talking about.

    Surely if you've paid in cash then you're screwed, you can't raise a paypal dispute and I'm sure there is an Ebay rule that says you have to pay through the site.

    ^----- worth a try, she'll only say you checked them before you took them though. Name and shame so we can all avoid her.

    Just go round and tell them to cut the **** and give your money back. Be nice but firm.

    Id say learn from your mistakes and move on. not alot you can do except neg her.

    use scare tactics say you are going to the police if she doesn't refund you put it in writing and post it through the door, see what happens and say you will go to the local paper she might give in and give you your cash back

    surely something can be done using item not as described as a point, if she hasnt put that theres paint on them in the listing then they are not as described!

    She will just say they were perfect when they left her...

    How much did you pay for the curtains? I am not being nosy, I will explain if the price warrants it...

    Edit: Just seen price.

    You will need to figure out which law applies. As this is eBay I do not want to waste my time trawling through the site.

    If I was you, and it might seem stupid, I would send her a "14 day letter" saying that you will be putting in a small claim. It is £25 but I feel that you were definitely misled. Make sure that you check eBay T&Cs.

    Go round and do a massive turd on her front lawn

    Mum has decided to go on a mish ('mission' for you older generation) she is going to spenf the next few months sorting them out whilst also changing the colour of them so parts of the have been ripped apart now (I don't know why, no idea what she is doing) so she wont get her curtains back anyway....

    Then start shotting it up at the windows.....make sure you had sweetcorn night b4 and take some gloves

    get a builder to build a wall covering her front door

    Why didn't you inspect them fully? You wouldn't do it with a car. I know its dishonest of the person, but they fully expected you not to if you would looked things may have been different.

    Haha nice idea. Sweetcorn and a Beef Madras should do the trick.

    How are they described. Immac cond. etc
    Obviously the paint wasn't mentioned.
    Would report and file a dispute.
